Spiritual Support for Servicemembers, Veterans and their Families

In Luke 7, Jesus encounters a Roman army officer, a Centurion seeking healing for one of his men. The Centurion demonstrates his faith and trust in the Lord, and Jesus tells him:

"As you have believed, let it be done for you."

The Centurion found healing at the feet of Jesus.  Today's military servicemembers and their families need healing today as well from the invisible wounds of war.  Then, as now:

"Faith Heals."

Our Mission:

We serve God by serving military servicemembers, veterans and their families in middle Tennessee.  We exist to organize and equip the local church to better serve military families.  The love of Christ can help heal the wounds of war.

They serve us – Now its our turn to help...

Strategic Objectives:

  • Establish and lead Combat Trauma Healing groups in local churches.
  • Equip and encourage the local church to run groups.
  • Provide resources and support in categories such as spiritual and deployment readiness, trauma healing and strengthening the military marriage.
  • Organize outreach to the hurting in our veteran community through local veteran's support organizations.
  • Provide ministry support as possible for units at Ft. Campbell.

Why We Exist

  • There are approximately 16,000 veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan in Middle Tennessee, as well as thousands of Vietnam veterans and veterans of other conflicts.
  • 1 in 5 troops returning from combat may be diagnosed with PTSD symptoms yet less than 40% of them will seek help through traditional channels.
  • 1/3 of the adult homeless population in the U.S. today are military veterans.
  • Two out of 3 military marriages end in divorce, and domestic abuse is up 177% in recent years
  • Many lose hope.  The suicide rate among servicemembers and veterans continues to escalate - 18 veterans commit suicide each day and 950 attempt suicide each month.
